Cheerwine Festival Hitting the Streets of Salisbury, NC 

Where are all my Cheerwine fans?! I know I have a house full of Cheerwine lovers!

We even make homemade Cheerwine ice-cream! The 103-year-old soft drink born and based in Salisbury, N.C., is once again teaming up with its home city to host the fourth annual “Cheerwine Festival” on Saturday, May 16, from noon-10 p.m. An estimated 60,000 people attended the 2019 event.
